Sir & Madam, is there any chance of pregnant if I did intercourse with my wife after 15 days of her menstrual cycle?
Hi lybrate-user, There could be a chance of pregnancy and the only way to know for sure is to do a pregnancy test either in the urine or blood if your wife misses her period. Hope this helps.

How to Prevent Your Child from Developing Type 2 Diabetes?

MBBS, DNB, Diploma Dyslipidemia, CCEBDM, CCMTD
General Physician, Gurgaon
How to Prevent Your Child from Developing Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is a chronic metabolic disorder that prevents the body from processing sugar or glucose. The disorder causes insufficient production of the hormone Insulin (responsible for regulating sugar into the different parts of your body); or the body's failure to respond to the hormone produced. Although no cure is available for T2DM, there are several ways in which you can help prevent Type 2 diabetes in your child. These are:

1. Get your child to indulge in some physical activity - Spending about 60 minutes of the day on physical activity can help your child to ward off Type 2 diabetes. In terms of screen time, it shouldn't be over 2 hours a day. By doing so, he or she ends up building his or her muscles as well as gets rid of extra fat from the body. An active life would also help your child to maintain an optimal body weight with obesity being a cause of this form of diabetes. Whether it's a sport like swimming, cricket or basketball, or even walking and dancing, physical activity in any form can help in preventing your child from developing Type 2 diabetes.

2. Plan a well-balanced diet for your child - Encouraging your child to have healthy foods and making right food choices can also lower his or her chances of getting this metabolic disorder. Foods high in fiber like whole grain cereals and bread, lentils, fruits, and vegetables should be consumed. Similarly, foods low in trans and saturated fats like lean meat, chicken, yogurt and cheese should be included in your child's diet. Processed foods, as well as sugary drinks, should be no-no when it comes to your child's diet.

3. Adopting proper eating habits - It is not only making the right food choices that are important but eating right as well is vital for preventing the onset of diabetes. Having meals with fix portion sizes is a habit that you need to develop in your child. Ideally, half the plate should be filled with vegetables and fruits; a quarter with lean protein like chicken; and the remaining with whole grain. To accompany the meal, make your child have one cup of no-fat or low-fat milk. Desserts like ice cream and cookies should be allowed only once or twice a week.

Ayurvedic pulse diagnosis

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Ayurvedic pulse diagnosis

What is nadi pariksha (ayurvedic pulse
Diagnosis)
This is the most powerful diagnostic tool for
Understanding the cause of any ailment or
Disease in the human body. It is a part of our
Vedic lineage and is passed on from guru to the
Disciple depending on the spiritual evolution of the
Disciple.
How is the diagnosis done
In the normal course of our visit to a doctor, we
Specify the ailments we feel we are suffering
From. Based on this preliminary information, the
Doctor checks us up and if necessary,
Recommends us to undergo further tests to
Collaborate his understanding with what we have
Told him. He thus forms an understanding of the
Symptoms.
On the contrary, during the nadi pariksha, a
Person need not have to specify his/her problems
In advance. The nadi vidwan is not supposed to
Know the details in advance as he should not get
Influenced by the patient's symptoms. Though
The symptoms reveal the disease process, it is
The cause of the prevailing or persisting
Symptoms that are more important. Each cell in
Our body possesses its own intelligence. It is the
Communication of this intelligence in the form of
Vibrations that is studied in nadi pariksha. Nadi
Pariksha understands the vibratory frequency of
The pulse at various levels on the radial artery.
Subtle vibrations are read at seven different levels
Vertically downward that help in ascertaining
Various functions in the body. The pulse, when
Examined, reveals both physical and mental
Characteristics of the pulse. This is interpreted in
The form of symptoms along with their prognosis
Which helps in understanding the cause. Thus,
Nadi pariksha forms the basis for addressing any
Ailment in an individual.
The accuracy of the pulse reading depends on the
Intuitive awareness of the individual and also the
Ability to understand and interpret the subtlety of
Vibrations. This sensitive awareness determines
The success of nadi pariksha.
The 5 elements or the 'panchamahabhutas' are
Ether, air, fire, water and earth. The 3 doshas or
Humors of vata, pitta, and kapha come as a
Combination of these 5 elements.
Ether + air = vata (mobility)
Fire +water = pitta (heat)
Water + earth = kapha (viscosity)
Any imbalance in the doshas will bring forth an
Ailment that will subsequently lead to a disease
Process. Each of these doshas have their
Physical, mental, emotional and physiological
Characteristics.
What is revealed during the nadi
Pariksha:
Every aspect of the human organism, the body,
Mind etc. Is understood during the pulse
Diagnosis.
Apart from understanding the cause of the
Current ailments, the diagnosis tracks the disease
Back to its origin. Even subtler levels of causal
Factors like emotional issues or specific thought
Patterns of the individual, that manifest into
Physical ailments subsequently are understood.
Nadi pariksha is undertaken to understand the
Following aspects in an individual:
Helps to ascertain one's original constitution at
The time of conception (prakruti). This forms the
Basis of deciding the basis and structure of the
Individualized healing process.
Helps to understand one's current constitution
As against the original constitution (vikruti).
The diagnosis ascertains the deviation that the
Body and mind have taken as compared to its
Original constitution. Also, it enables one to
Understand the prognosis of ailments that have
Arisen during this transition from prakruti to
Vikruti.
Nadi pariksha successfully tracks down the
Altered state of the mind. This is very important
As the science of ayurveda believes that a major
Part of human ailments are psychosomatic in
Nature. This is so because the only way the mind
Can express itself is through the body. Therefore,
The body works to a very large
Extent according to the dictates of the mind.
The analysis at the doshas, the subtle entities of
The psycho and physiological body. Any alteration in
The doshas can lead to understanding of the
Disease process. The doshas like vata, pitta
Kapha and their sub units help in understanding:
The movement of energies and the working of the
Nervous system, circulation as defined by the
Pulsation of the heart, and the movement of
Nutrition to various tissues in the body.
The metabolic process and the process of bio-
Transformation in the body, which governs the
Activities of digestion, absorption and assimilation
Of nutrition.
The assimilating and binding functions through
The help of bodily fluids which includes the
Proper and healthy formation of muscles, bones,
Ligaments and tendons etc.
The study of the health of various types of tissues
In the body like plasma, blood, muscle, marrow,
Bone, nerve, and reproduction.
The health of the chakras or the subtle energy
Wheels in the body that corresponds to the glands
In the physical body is ascertained. Chakras
Relate to and control certain physiological
Processes in the body.
Subsequent to doing the nadi pariksha, other
Forms of examination are taken up. This is done
To cross-examine the correctness of the pulse
Diagnosis. These various methods are highlighted
As under:
Nails - the shape and size of nails reveal the
Type of constitution a person belongs to. For
Example, small size nails with serrated edges
(basically bitten by a person due to anxiety or
Nervousness signifies a vata nail. Pitta nails are
Slightly larger in size with a slight curvature in the
Middle that resembles a semi 'c' shape. These
Nails, when pressed at the top, will reveal a slight
Yellow tinge in the center. A kapha nail is usually
Large in size. These nails normally will be whitish
In colour. The surface of the nail is usually large.
Indications: vata nails have vertical lines that
Look like deep serrations or ridges. Pitta nails,
Apart from having vertical ridges (not always
Necessary) can also have reddish lines along
These ridges starting from the bottom of the nail
Running towards the top. Kapha nails may have a
Larger curvature in the center owing to the larger
Surface area.
Tongue - the tongue reveals all the organs of
The body and particularly reveals the aspects of
Digestion and assimilation of food. It reveals the
Kind of digestive disorders and which of the 3
Doshas were responsible or are in a state of
Imbalance. The type of ailment is also revealed.
Indications: vata when aggravated shows a
Cracked and rough tongue. Pitta when aggravated
Shows a reddish tongue and kapha when
Aggravated shows a whitish slimy mucus coatin
On the tongue. The tongue also reveals the
Physiological problems present in other parts of
The body but this is a very lengthy subject and
Cannot be discussed in detail here.
2. Eyes - the shape of the eyes reveal the
Nature of the person's original constitution. Also
On examination, the eyes reveal what is the
Nature of the ailment and the doshas responsible
For it.
Indications: a person suffering from a vata
Disorder will have a brownish colouration in the
Eyes. There will be dryness felt in the eyes too. A
Pitta condition will reveal redness of yellowish
Colouring in the eyes. A kapha condition will show
Denseness or cloudy vision along with whitish
Marks in the eyes.
3. Speech - the strength of the voice and the
Intonations while talking reveals the predominant
Dosha present in the person at the time of
Examination. Also, which talking, gesticulations or
Emphasis during communication shows the
Predominant dosha at the time of analysis. This
Also reveals the nature of symptoms present in
The body and the cause.
Indications: a vata person will talk fast and will
Change subjects without relevance or context.
Breathing will be erratic and gesticulations will be
Predominant. A pitta person will speak in a loud,
Strong tone which will display dominance which
Can be easily mistaken for arrogance. The
Conviction in the speech will be evident. A kapha
Person will be mild, soft and musical in his
Speech. He will slow in his expressions and will
Not rush in his conversation.
4. Skin - the feel and texture of the skin reveals
The kind of dosha present. The temperature of
Skin reveals the presence of either vata, pitta and
Kapha in circulation. The pigmentation on the
Skin reveals the kind of toxins in the blood.
Indications: a vata skin is dry with scales or
Flaking. It will be cold to the touch. It can also
Have a darkish coloration. A pitta person will
Have an oily skin, with possible inflammation
Under the skin which will be denoted by reddish
Patches. It will be hot to the touch. Normally a
Pitta person will have a skin which will be hot to
The touch. A kapha person will have a cold and
Damp feeling to touch. It is either milkishly white
Or pale.
5. Urine - the colour, nature, frequency and the
Content in the urine determines the nature of
Ailment in the body. The frequency and the
Volume of urination reveals the intensity of
Ailment.
Indications: a vata person will experience scanty
Urination or infrequent urination. The quantity of
Urine will also vary. The urgency to urinate will
Not justify the quantity of urine coming out. The
Urine will be astringent in smell. A pitta person
Will have hot urine coming out and in a better
Volume. Normally, when the pitta dosha is
Aggravated, frequent, irritant urination will persist.
Urine will either be dark yellow to yellow to
Reddish in colour. The urine will have a strong and
Pungent smell. A kapha person will have a large
Volume of urination. The colour of urine will be
Whitish and can be frothy.
6. Stools - the formation and colour of stool
Shows the nature of the ailment. Also, the number of
Evacuations or lack of evacuation like
Constipation, for example, provides the information
Of both the emotional levels of the individual as
Well as the working of the physiological of the
Body. Even the smell in the breath when a
Person is talking reveals the kind of toxins
Present in the large intestine and the predominant
Dosha imbalance which has caused these toxins
To manifest.
Indications: a vata person will have varying stool
Formation. He will experience lots of gas and
Distention of the abdomen. Normally, stools will
Be hard and the person will feel constipated. The
Colour of the stools will vary between dark brown
To black. The stools will normally float. A pitta
Person will have well-formed stools too loose
Stools. The colour of the stools will vary from
Brown to light brown. Especially when the pitta
Dosha is aggravated, the stools colour will be
Yellowish in colour and can vary between semi
Formed to loose stools. He can also experience
Burning in his rectum while passing stools.
Occasional mucus formation will also be present.
A kapha person will have large volume in his
Stools. There will be mucus present in stools. The
Colour of stools will be between brown to yellow.

Dear Sir my marriage is one and half year passed but I don't having child. So please help me what I do?
If you and your partner have been having unprotected sexual intercourse for over a year and are still not able to conceive a baby, chances are that either one of you has a problem relating to fertility. There may be several causes behind this problem. In men, a low sperm count is one of the primary reasons for infertility. In women, a blockage in the fallopian tubes, uterine fibroids or cysts in the ovaries could be the cause of infertility. Also, as a woman enters her 30s, her reproductive system starts showing signs of ageing and produces lesser hormones and eggs, this could cause difficulty in conceiving. There are several sophisticated medical procedures for helping infertile couples conceive, such as artificial insemination, invitrio fertilization and test tube babies. Though the exact nature of the problem and the best way of dealing with it can be determined only by a doctor, there are a few basic rules that you should follow to increase your chances of conceiving naturally. Make sure you have sex while you are ovulating during the menstrual cycle. Using an ovulation predictor test kit to determine exactly when you start ovulating is a good idea.

Aortic Valve Stenosis: Tests and Diagnosis

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist, Jaipur
Aortic Valve Stenosis: Tests and Diagnosis

Aortic valve stenosis is a heart condition in which the valve to the biggest artery- the one which provides oxygen-rich blood to our body, called aorta, is narrowed. This prevents the valve from opening fully, obstructing the blood flow from your heart into your body.

When the aortic valve doesn’t open, your heart needs to work harder to pump blood to your body making the heart muscle weak. If left undiagnosed aortic stenosis is fatal.

Symptoms

These symptoms should spur you on to seek medical care right away:

  1. Chest pain or tightness

  2. Feeling faint with exertion

  3. Shortness of breath

  4. Fatigue after increased activity

  5. Heart palpitations — rapid, fluttering heartbeat

  6. Heart murmur

The disorder doesn’t produce symptoms right away and is usually diagnosed during routine physical exams when your doctor listens to your heart with a stethoscope. He usually hears a heart murmur resulting from turbulent blood flow through the narrowed aortic valve.

Diagnostic Tests

There are other ways to diagnose aortic valve stenosis and gauge the severity of the problem, like:

  1. Echocardiogram – This produces an image of your heart using sound. It is the primary test to diagnose a heart valve problem. Sound waves are directed at your heart here and these bounce off your heart and are processed electronically to provide images of your heart. This test helps your doctor check diagnose aortic valve stenosis and its severity plus chalk out a treatment plan.

  2. Electrocardiogram (ECG) –  In this test, patches with electrodes are attached to your chest to measure electrical impulses given out by your heart. These are then recorded as waves on a monitor and printed on paper. Though this can’t diagnose aortic stenosis directly, it can tell you that the left ventricle in your heart is thickened which normally happens due to aortic stenosis.

  3. Chest X-ray – This allows the doctor to see the shape and size of your heart directly. If the left ventricle is thickened, it points to aortic stenosis. It also helps doctor check the lungs. Aortic stenosis leads to fluid and blood in the lungs, causing congestion.

  4. Exercise Tests – Exercise is used to increase your heart rate and make your heart work harder. This test is done to see how your heart reacts to exertion. Exercise test may be contraindicated in severe AS. MRI and X ray not much helpful to diagnose AS. 

  5. Computerised Tomography (CT) Scan –  This means a series of X-rays to create images of your heart and observes the heart valves. CT is helpful in planning for nonsurgical valve replacement. Cardiac Catheterisation is usually needed prior to surgery.

  6. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) –  This uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create images of your heart and valves.

Once aortic valve stenosis is confirmed, you may have to go in for monitoring or heart valve surgery according to your doctor’s advice. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.
